OMRON AUTOMATION E3AS Series Reflective-Type Photoelectric Sensors combine accurate detection for diverse targets, enhanced sensing distance, environmental robustness and compact size. Devices are designed to help manufacturers manage varied and flexible production needs more effectively. OEMs are producing a broader range of products with shorter life cycles, making part detection a dynamic challenge. By maintaining stable detection without being influenced by varying sensing distances, colors, materials, or surfaces, devices make selection, adjustment and maintenance tasks easier, improving commissioning and operation rates. Product family’s sensing distance of 1,500mm is five times longer than that of previous models, and the full sensing range of 50mm to 1,500mm eliminates the need for manufacturers to select different sensors for each application. The time-of-flight (TOF) detection method ensures high detection stability regardless of the characteristics of target objects.
